Default Engine part identification help...

Sorry if this sounds very noobish but recently my car has started making this constant low pitched "whining" noise that isn't rpm dependent and it is coming from the front of the engine. Its also emitting a slight burning smell at times.

I've isolated the noise to the round pump on the right of the alternator but I'm not sure exactly which pump it is. My guess is that its the PS pump but like I said I'm not sure. Also, I'm not sure if it is a bad bearing or is actually the pump going bad and if it is the power steering pump, where do I check to see if there is enough fluid in the reservoir? Many thanks

The accessory on the drivers side of the alternator is the AC compressor. On the passanger side is the Power Steering pump.

To check the fluid level in the PS system, check the tank mounted next to the PS pump on the inner fender. You should be able to trace the hose from the pump to the tank.
